configuration-injection-vulnerability/index.html    The dynamic configuration
feature in Xinha WYSIWYG editor 0.96 Beta 2  and earlier, as used in Serendipity
1.5.2 and earlier, allows remote  attackers to bypass intended access
restrictions and modify the  configuration of arbitrary plugins via (1) crafted
backend_config_secret_key_location and backend_config_hash parameters  that are
used in a SHA1 hash of a shared secret that can be known or  externally
influenced, which are not properly handled by the  "Deprecated config passing"
feature; or (2) crafted backend_data and  backend_data[key_location] variables,
which are not properly handled  by the xinha_read_passed_data function.  NOTE:
this can be leveraged to  upload and possibly execute arbitrary files via
config.inc.php in the  ImageManager plugin.
